I haven't gone in 2 weeks. I've tried suppositories and enemas and my dr had me drink magnesium citrate but I threw it up. What else can I do.

Eat a shitload of apples.

Prune juice.

Have sex.

Get a low back massage.

Go to an acupuncturist.

Get into a warm bath with Epsom salts every day.

Yoga breathing. Relax.

2 weeks!? 

You need to attack that from both ends.... I'd drink miralax in whatever beverage you can tolerate probably 3 times/day

I'd also do another enema... make sure you hold the enema in as long as you can to soften things. 

Does you doctor know it's been 2 WEEKS!?

I take two of these every day.  Haven't had a problem since and I started taking them 5 years ago.  You have to change what you are doing long term.  The ideas people are giving you may work for the moment, but if you want to clear up the problem forever, try this or the Benefiber.  Follow the directions.

And my husband is a doctor if that makes a difference.

Yes he knows. I have never had constipation problems before. I can barely eat anything now because even a cracker makes my stomach feel so full like it's going to explode.
